Description 

An absolutely smashing wall stacked with approximately 12 routes, some of which are extensions. The wall has it all...100% gear, mixed and fully bolted lines up to 13+. With only one singular 5.10 route, this is not an intermediate climber's wall, it caters to 5.12 and harder climbers. Quercus Cliff sits in an idyllic location perched up above Lakeside in the Woods, just off the new Loop Trail in a well cleared out nook.

Getting There 

Follow the orange diamonds up the Loop Trail just before Lakeside in the Woods, passing The Commonwealth cliff. Hiking further past Quercus takes you to Up Among the Firs.

Apparently the name (with proper pronounciation) might be a spin-off of a classic Yosemite pitch on the Rostrum...Interesting climbing past some cool polish takes you past 5 bolts to a shallow left facing corner where an optional small cam could be placed. Either clip the intermediate chains and call it a 5.10, or crank out a cruxy move clearing the overhang to some crimps and a tricky clip. (I believe this may have been an abandoned route from years ago and the bolts only were replaced?) From t...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
